Poor communication on Ennis Avenue widening project

Dear Editor: Tuesday morning City of Ennis workers suddenly appeared in many vehicles and removed the Turn of the Century street lights from the north side of the 300, 400, 500 and 600 blocks of West Ennis Avenue. Some were street lights that I was required to purchase from the City when they were installed.  A […]

What a lower tax rate really means to Ennis

City of Ennis Manager, Chuck Ewings, is touting the decrease in the city tax rate as a good thing; in both city council meetings and local newspapers. The comment goes something like this: “Because of property value growth, city tax rates will be decreasing from $.695 per $100 in value to $.669 per $100 in […]

Where the Supreme Court Same-Sex “Marriage” Decision Ultimately Leads

Dear Editor, The 1st Amendment language that has recently started appearing on your Opinion page presumably constitutes an invitation to address constitutional issues. To that end, please consider this comment on the recent Supreme Court decision of Obergefell v. Hodges, 576 U. S. ____ (2015). Among the many astounding statements contained within the Supreme Court’s […]

Appreciates Ortiz, Lionettes coverage in EDN

Dear Editor:   I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the EDN coverage of our EHS Lionette activities and events over the past year. I was thrilled to see the recent article about our much-loved team and their tireless Director, Ms. Cassie Ortiz. While they are best known for high kicks and […]

Do we really want a dynasty election?

To the Editor: There seems to be some evidence that the Democrat strategy of hiding Mrs. Clinton from any serious questions is starting to backfire. Polls are not worth paying serious attention to right now, so far as who is most likely to win or lose a presidential election 18 months from now. See the […]

Appreciates Assistance

To the Editor: I would like to thank all of my friends, the Police Department and all that was involved in my situation. Your quick action and response was appreciated so much in resolving the issue. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. See the letter in the Ennis Daily News! Click […]

10 things farmers do when it rains

And the rains came. And came. And came. After months of speculation, weather experts announced El Niño is here. Last Friday. Ha! Texas farmers and ranchers could have made that announcement two months ago. At least farmers and ranchers have a sense of humor. Because it’s a dire situation. One of my Facebook farmer friends […]

Sports column captured feelings about daughter

This afternoon I read our local paper especially, the story about my daughter, Courtlyn, and Julia (Hollingsworth). Working in a big city, sometimes we forget the importance of local news, but Mark’s column, Warde’s Wheelhouse, brought this point to my attention. I realized he must love the game and realized it is what makes these […]

Giving Landowners the Power

To the editor: High-voltage transmission lines are needed to meet evolving energy needs. Engineers estimate that seven billion dollars of investment is required to properly maintain and update the electric grid. But building lines isn’t easy. Developers will need to acquire thousands of acres of land from landowners across the country. See the report in […]

Shame to cancel long-time VFW scholarship

To the editor: It is a shame that Post Officials decided to cancel one of the long-enduring VFW Scholarships – The Voice of Democracy Scholarship (also known as the William H. Wakeham Memorial Scholarship). This Scholarship was established in 1986. See the report in the Ennis Daily News! Click here to sign up for our […]

Ex-Im at risk – would hurt local business to lose it

At Polyguard, we manufacture coatings used to stop corrosion on oil and gas pipelines, as well as waterproofing and vapor barrier products. Since 1953, we have been an industry leader creating high performance coatings that keep pipelines working longer. Starting in 2005, Polyguard began selling products outside of the United States and Canada. In that […]

Historical Society wants your help to save old house

The Ennis Historical Society is opposed to the demolition of the historic Loggins-Mulkey house. Though the EHS does not have the financial resources to move or restore this community treasure, we have been working together with the City of Ennis to try and find a solution. Your input is appreciated and please feel free to […]

Help save Mulkey house

Dear Editor: Thank you for spotlighting the issue of the Mulkey House’s preservation. The article in Wednesday’s issue was especially enlightening for what it says about the Ennis Historical Society and the City of Ennis. See the report in the Ennis Daily News! Click here to sign up for our E-Edition and read the rest […]

Bullet train has supporters, too

I find it saddening and disappointing that the city and county are so dead set against the bullet train project. In recent years, the city has promoted the future and progress countless times, and now that the opportunity to be a part of possibly the most futuristic project in the nation wants to come our […]

Loggins Mulkey house is important

The Loggins Mulkey house may not be the most grand of historic homes as was the Cerf house. It may not hold the history connected to the railroad that made Ennis great as the Daffan house did. But in this moment in the city of Ennis it is the last standing testament to the courage […]

Fond Memories of a Paperboy

Dear Editor, When I was 11 years old (1959), I started my first job as a paper boy for the Ennis Daily News. My route included West Knox, West Ennis Avenue and West Brown Street. Paper boys were responsible for collecting the paper bill from each customer. I also threw a paper to Mrs. Cerf. […]
